As a child, Adan had to go through many difficult situations. When he was only 8 years old his legendary father, Chalino Sanchez, was murdered in Sinaloa, Mexico. His father was a singer who came to this country to look for a better future for his family. When he got here, he started writing songs and later started singing them. He was soon to become very famous among the people. Chalino's death was a very difficult stage in Adan's life as well as for his family. Not only did he have to face the fact that his father had died, but he had to see his mom in a stage of depression caused by losing her husband and by not knowing how she was going to go on with her life and how she was going to support her family.
As the man of the house, he decided to follow his father's footsteps since he was his role model. He wanted to begin his career as a singer to support his mother and his sister. Adan then realized that it wasn't going to be easy. His mother took him to many radio stations when he was only 9 years old to see if they would give him a chance and play his music in the station. Adan was rejected many times, but he never gave up; he was determined to accomplish his dreams. He worked hard and was rejected many, many times until he went to a famous Los Angeles radio station called, "La Que Buena." There they gave him a chance because they believed in his talent. Little did the radio stations that rejected him know that he was soon to become a hit, in a short period of time.
